How do I figure out how much I would get if approved for SSDI?
And would I get any medical or prescription help?
Also, I know I asked this before probably, but I have heard some people get approved right away.... How? I have read thru their list of sever conditions and think I qualify, but do you think I'm still in for a long battle?
Under section 100: Musculoskeletal System - Adult
Category of impairment:
4. Other miscellaneous conditions that may cause weakness of the lower extremities, sensory changes, areflexia, trophic ulceration, bladder or bowel incontinence, and that should be evaluated under 1.04 include, but are not limited to, osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, facet arthritis, and vertebral fracture. Disorders such as spinal dysrhaphism (e.g., spina bifida), diastematomyelia, and tethered cord syndrome may also cause such abnormalities. In these cases, there may be gait difficulty and deformity of the lower extremities based on neurological abnormalities, and the neurological effects are to be evaluated under the criteria in 11.00ff.
Maybe I should just talk to an Atty....?
Also, about 4 days ago I started getting the most excruciating pain in my lower hip area. Deep inside. Right side. Radiates down my leg. Sometimes starts to feel numb. Hurts so bad can badly move, let alone walk.... Even my current meds don't even help in the slightest bit.
So any advice regarding getting approved would be greatly appreciated.
